Rendering is a great way to cover up unsightly brickwork. It leaves your property looking clean, stylish and can really transform a dated building. A render system is a plastered finish to your external walls, and they come in a range of finishes and colours.
Silicone rendering is highly popular due to its unique properties. It is applied in a thin layer on top of a base coat. This render system is breathable, flexible and hydrophobic. In addition to this, it is also self-cleaning.
It is important to have a system that breathes. If any moisture gets behind it, it can get out again. Otherwise, moisture can potentially cause damage to your walls and system. In the summer months, your house will swell, whereas in the winter it will shrink and lead to cracking. Silicone is highly flexible and resistant to cracking compared to other systems.
Silicone rendering comes in several colours and grain sizes, so you can customise your property however you’d like.
Monocouche is a dry powdered render with coloured pigment. It is another popular system, especially for those who seek a crisp and flat finish on their property. Monocouche has several benefits.
Firstly, it is strong against the elements, no matter how much wind or rain it endures. Furthermore, it has a life span for approximately 10 years and its colour will remain.
In addition to this, this system comes in a range of colours and finishes. It also has a high thermal efficiency, saving you money on your bills.
Often applied as a thin finish, acrylic seals and enhances the coat underneath. It adds vibrance and texture and gives immense durability to your property. This means you don’t have to worry about cracking.
Acrylic can be easily applied to a range of surfaces. Moreover, it dries very quickly in a matter of days. Another advantage to this system is its resistance towards water. This means that your property remains dry and healthy from fungi and bacteria.
